My home state is showing up much closer to the top of the list of murder-per-capita than I would have expected, so I went looking for usable stats for gun crimes in Missouri. I wasn’t finding much usable or current info until I came across this… it’s an interactive map that shows locations of shootings all throughout the US, including information on actual locations, details of the type of incident, if people were injured or killed.
Here’s what Missouri looks like - yellow is an injury, red is a death or death+injury.
Turns out that Missouri doesn’t have a gun-crime problem, Kansas City and St. Louis, and to a much lesser degree Springfield and Columbia, have a gun-crime problem. The entire rest of the state has very low rates of shooting.
At any rate, you can zoom in and see your state, city, down to the individual neighborhoods - worth looking at to see what’s happening in your area.
